O the revered memory of 

those Alumni who gave 

their lives that the world 

might be safe for democracy, we 

dedicate this, our first volume of 


"Let us here resolve, that these 
dead have not died in vain; that 
this nation, under God, shall 
have a new birth of freedom ; 
and that government of the peo- 
ple, by the people, and for the 
people, shall not perish from this 

QolJshoro, Ik <-- 



SINCE, "Gentle Reader," this 
is our first attempt to publish an 
Annual, we beg you to be forbearing in 
your criticisms of "Tarpitur." 

We have endeavored to give you, 
alumni, schoolmates, and friends, an idea 
of our literary, social, and athletic ac- 

If this book, in years to come, shall 
serve to recall to our minds pleasant mem- 
ories and happy thoughts of our "dear old 
school days," then we shall feel that our 
efforts have not been in vain. 

The Editors. 



The Faculty

Miss Cobb 
Miss Peele 

Miss Walker 
Miss Fullerton 

Miss Summerell 
Mr. Love 

Miss Edwards 

Miss Davis 
Mr. Armstrong 

Who's Who Among the Faculty 

HE Editor-in-Chief is a heartless creature to place on my inadequate shoulders 
the difficult task of "cussing and discussing" the members of our faculty. But, 
since the armistice was signed November 1 1 th instead of November 1 Oth, it 
is not always what we want to do but what we have to do. But before I go farther 
I want to impress upon the members of the faculty who will read this that what I say is 
no fault of mine, but true facts, and the faults of the faculty themselves. 

Of all the teachers I must admit that Miss Davis is the most generous. About 
every five minutes in study hall she shows her unselfishness in this manner: "Ralph 
King, I give you one hour after school." 

"Thank you, ma'am," comes the response — while to the rest of us she won't even 
give a minute. 

Miss Davis' home is in Mt. Olive, N. C. She came here from Greensboro, where 
she graduated at the State Normal. 

Mr. Armstrong graduated at the University of North Carolina. He came from 
Greensboro here. If the saying is true that "two hearts beat as one," I am sure that 
there is another in Greensboro that gives the two in one effect, for no sane-minded 
school teacher is going to spend his wek-ends in Greensboro for nothing. 

The other day, while I was passing down the hall I heard some one say, "Aw! 
Just a minute! Let me give you an illustration. Take a wagon . . . !!" I 
peeped through the door and recognized Mr. Hamrick, the principal, on Senior History 
Class. I am sure that if Mr. Hamrick had not followed the old maxim, "Hitch your 
wagon to a star," before he began teaching us about the tariff, he would never have 
attained as much as he has in this world, for he wears out on an average one wagon a 
week drawing illustrations. 

Mr. Hamrick is a graduate of Wake Forrest College, where he obtained his degree 
of B.A. 

Then returning to my room as the bell rang I heard a feminine voice exclaim, "Hey 
there, you Freshmen, get in line!" followed by, "You are perfectly hopeless!" I looked 
up and recognized Miss Walker. She is the best waller in town. She attended Queen's 
College, and has studied at Peabody and Columbia University. 

Mr. Love graduated at the University of North Carolina. He was principal of the 
school at Lumberton, from which place he entered the army. I am sure that if the war had 
lasted longer he would have caused General Pershing to lose his job, but as the fates 
would have it, peace was declared. So he stopped the army and came here to teach. 
The mail man used to say that he was a perfect bore because he was always rushing 
up to ask if there wasn't a letter for him. But he's changed his tune now! ! ! 


Miss Fullerton is from Nova Scotia. She first attended a small college in her own 
province, then did special work at Columbia University, where she obtained the M.A. 
degree. She takes great pride in her French and Latin Classes. 

"Wait a minute, Florence, I'm coming." This familiar phraie came to me as I 
passed the Domestic Science door. Florence Faison didn't know, as usual, whether she 
needed salt or sugar. I then saw Miss Edwards, who is well versed in all Domestic 
Science, coming to the assistance of Florence. Miss Edwards is from Georgia. She 
went to school in Washington, D. C, and it seems she liked the name so much that she 
went to Washington, N. C, to teach. From there she came to us. 

As I passed down the hall I heard Miss Nellie Cobb as usual telling the Seniors to 
pick up the paper, erase the blackboard, and wind the clock. Miss Nellie Cobb is 
home-grown, and therefore the best. She attended the Norfolk College and Boston 
Cooking School. After teaching Domestic Science for a while she decided to specialize 
in Math. 

Miss Rennie Peele, of Clarksville, Va., attended Oxford College and U. N. C, 
where she received her B.A. degree. A great honor was bestowed on our English 
Department, of which Miss Peele is head, when the North Carolina Association of 
English Teachers elected her Vice-President of their association. 

She is the most "appealing" of all the teachers, and I think Senior English appeals to 
her more than anything else. She is Faculty Editor for this annual, which is sufficient. 

"It's no more use than blowing through a rat hole." Everyone recognizes this ex- 
pression as belonging to Miss Summerell. Miss Summerell is the head of our Science 
Department. After graduating from North Carolina State College in 1916 she held 
the position of principal of the school at Bolton. She worked at the A. and M. of Texas 
in the State Agricutural Experiment Station for eighteen months, where she says she 
stuck to her work "Like a sick kitten to a hot brick."

Nannie Hood Summerlin 

Nannie has no need of a dictionary. Walter says 
that is why he stopped school — that there was no 
need of so much book-learning in one family. 
"And slill the ivonder grem 

That one small head could carry all she £nen>." 

Hugh Gordon Maxwell 


The fact that "Boose" got the vote of the class as 
being "the wittiest boy" over the editor of the Senior 
Daily and Cecil Smith shows what a genius for 
wit he really is. "Boose" is a regular Irvin Cobb 
for keeping his own face while other people laugh. 

"Laugh and be merry — remember."

Mildred Maie Smith 

"Bill" could lift your hat off your head by the 
voice from her huge mouth — and I fear that it will 
yet be her destruction. 

"Fun and play 
Is Bill's may."

Stella is probably our most conscientious worker 
and works with a wholeheartedness. She has always 
done good work and is a model student. 

"A ■willing worker, full of mirth, 
We need more lh\e her on this earth.'' 

Glee Club, '17. 

Bishop L. Malpass 

Here is a boy who is studious and dignified. He 
is one that we girls can always count on when we 
need help — that's more than we can say for the rest 
of them. 

"There's something marvelously attractive about 
this boy." 

Annie Nursie Grady 


"Fat" seems capable of swallowing her history and 
her Latin, for her recitations are verbatim. There's 
no wonder that she was voted our most studious 

Member Glee Club, '17, 'IS; Assistant Pianist, 
'19, '20. 





Sudie Robinson Murphrey 

Sudie is one of the "salt of the earth" — that is, she 
helps to preserve that "spoiled" set in Miss Cobb's 
room. Quietness, self-possession and sterling worth 
characterize our "most dignified Senior." 

"Her voice was ever soft, genlle and lout. 
An excellent thing in Woman." 

Member Glee Club, '17, '18. 

Leslie William Langston 


Girls, here's your chance — he has never been cap- 
tured. But he isn't afraid of girls, as you might 
think from that. He can study, too — when he 
wants to. 

"He's the catch of the season." 

Mary Inez Newsome 

"When our high school days are over. 

And the tests are over and "passed," 
And the final rewards and demerits 

Are all awarded at last. 
One name shall stand out from the others 

For earnestness, patience and truth — 
Inez, our best all-'round student. 

Our realized ideal, forsooth."

Sarah Elizabeth Simkins 

"Liz" was rightfully voted our most talented Senior. 
Although a great arguer, she does not wish to spend 
her remaining years at arguing, but wishes to be- 
come an actress. Here's to our Mary Pickford, the 
second ! 

Member Glee Club, '17, '18; Orchestra, '19, '20. 

Cfxil Clayton Smith 


There was never another just like "Greasy," for 
Nature made him that way and broke the model. 
He is the life of the class and we are proud of 
him. "Greasy" is a " 

"He wears a smile both deep and wide, 
And bothers nol with time or tide."

Julia Maie Roberts 


"Gus" is one of our youngest and most popular 
Seniors. She is a bunch of fun and life. You 
can ofter hear her before she appears. 

"When fun and frolic have begun, 
Cus comes in the Very first one." 





Virginia Claire Sasser 

"Ginger" — "Ginny" 

Our class historian must be bright to keep up with 
our histories, and we know that she is patient, too. 
She is as good-natured as you find. 

"For all she has a l(indly thought or word, 
From her unwind remarks are seldom heard."

erary Society, '19; Vice-President Senior Class, '19,

Annie Elizabeth Hornaday 

"Cutie" — "Blushing Annie" 

"Blushing Annie" is our most s;nt. mental, but, 
nevertheless, one of our jalliest classmates. Annie 
gels her nLkname righ'Jy from her limidness in 
midnight "truth meetings." 

"Cule enuff." 

Member Glee Club. '17. '18; Secretary Literary

Nellie Elizabeth Hinson 

The most important thing that we can think of about 
Nellie is that she loves chocolate candy — and she 
sure does that. Where does all that come from 
that she brings to school ? 

"Eat chocolate candy and grow fat — 
Sweet little Nellie does all of that." 





Blanch Hoskyns Henley 

"Babe" — "Snoops" 

Intellectual, resourceful, energetic, ten-talented. Oh, 
Blanche, what could you not, if you would?

Seymour Anderson Johnson 

"Shrimp" — "45" 

Seymour is our most popular boy. He never studies, 
but always knows his lesson. Puzzle: How does 
he learn his Latin? If he should desert, the Class 
of '20 would probably lose part of its "rep ' as 
noisiest — but we prefer the "rep." 

"Little but loud 
Is this member of our 'crowd'." 

President Literary Society, 'IS, '19; Vice-President 
Safety League, '18, '19. 

Lucy Elizabeth Hummel 


"Mr. Mac" called her "Lizzie McGiggle," and we 
guess "Mr. Mac" knew. The theory that perpetual 
motion is impossible is entirely discredited by her 
continual chatter. 

'It's Liz's expression to always shoot. 
When she can't think of what to say, 7'n 
to cazule. 






Gladys Jones Harrell 


Gladys, belter known as "Jada," does not abide by 
the old saying, "Children should be seen and not 
heard." She's always both seen and heard. But 
we do not know what we would have done without 
her and "The Buick," which is used as an ambu- 
lance most of the time.

Club, '17, '18; Vice-President Literary Society, 'IS,

Walter Harmon Jenkins 

" Jen\s" 

An athletic boy is Harmon. He plays most any- 
thing that comes along. He isn't so particularly fond 
of his lessons, but he can always manage to keep 
with us, regardless. 

"As good as you mafye ihem, on field and at home. 
It's hard to find better wherever you roam." 

Nellie Crow 

Nellie is a bird — she flies through her lessons. 

"Nellie, aspiring to higher things. 
Will have constant use of her 'Crow' wings." 

Glee Club, '17, '18. 





Eleanor Mantha Kornegay 

There's a sensitive girl who always gives us "Hail, 
Columbia," but then is so sweet — well, who would 
not love "Ell"? 

"Isn't that darling?" 

Leland B. Edmundson 


"Rube's" beaming smile wins him hordes of friends. 
His gay attire sets the styles for the "stronger sex" 
and sometimes the "weaker." As there's a reason 
for everything, well — 

"Along came Ruth." 

Margaret Lucile Dempsey 

"Ct)/e" — "Demp" 

"Demp" is our class baby, a title she well deserves. 
She is also our "fashion plate." She takes lots of 
interest in the Junior Class — we wonder why? 

"Lucile's the girl that always knows 
Just when and where io Wear her clothes."

Class, '19, '20; Censor Literary Society, '19, '20;

Dorothy Lee Simmons 


"Speck" was rightly voted ojr prettiest Senior. 
She's one you simply cannot gst mad with. After 
her school days are over, she is thinking seriously 
of taking a special course in "heart ' diseases. 

Class President, '17, 'IS; Treasurer Safety League, 
'17, 'IS; Critic Literary Society, '19, '20. 

Hart Norwood 

Although the name implies much, his favorite expres- 
sion is "You girls do tickle me." He's our most 
promising boy, and we have every reason to believe 
that our expectations will be justified. 

"A 'Specif' Toon I bother him, if such be the landing 
Of our most promising boy, with the largest under-

President Class, '19, '20; Business Manager "Tar- 
pitur," '19, '20. 

Jewell Flora Hinson 

She is rather quiet, and so you could hardly guess 
how much originality there is under it all. But it's 
there — and Jewell can use it, too, when the right 
time comes. She just does not do like most of the 
rest of us and try to show what she can do all of 
the time. 

"She isn't a girl that you'd talfe to show, 
But under it all there's genius, we fynow." 



Senior Class 

Julia Snipes 

When Julia has become a great singer and is known 
in the world, we will all wink at each other and 
say, "I knew it." 

"By using the sweet voice of the 'Snipe,' 
Sorrows frcm this world she'll wipe." 

Sarah Louise Giddens 


Sarah may be the sleepiest girl in our class, but 
she surely knows her lessons a great deal better 
than a lot of the "owls." 

Vice-President Literary Society, '17, 'IS; President 
Literary Society, '18, '19; Prophet Senior Class. 

Ruth Ellen Wilkins 

"Sis Cow" 

She works others; herself she hates to work. As 
editor-in-chief of the annual, she has proved her- 
self capable and willing. The results of her work 
are before you. What need of further comment? 

"A perfect woman nobly planned 
To warn, to comfort and command."

erary Society, '17, 'IS; Member Glee Club, '17, '18;

Member Basketball Team, 'IS, '19; President Lit- 
erary Society, '19, '20; Editor-in-Chiet "Tarpitur." 





Ila Maie Brogden 


"Sugar" is all that her name makes you imagine. 
She is a good student, but she never needs much 
inducement to make her lay aside her work for fun. 

"Now lla Maie is very sweet, 
Along with ihis she's very neat." 

Francis West Stanley 

"Franl(" — "Frances" 

The Senior Class would sink in the "slough of 
despond" if it were not for Frank s wit. He is 
the class poet and also the editor of The Senior 
Daily. When his poems and newspaper editorials 
have made him famous we will be glad to say that 
we went to school with him. 

Wit Editor, '19, '20. 

Hilda Reid Butler 


The attractive ways and charming personality of 
our little Brazilian just naturally draw a crowd, 
especially of the "stronger sex." She aspires to 
things literary and has begun her career by study- 
ing "Irwin" (Irving). 

Pianist, '19, '20. 


Senior Class 

Helen Yelverton 

Helen is our most a'hltt c rirl, and along with this 
she is smart. 

"Spry as a squirrel, neat as a pin, 
In all our garrns Helen will win."

itor "Tarpitur." 

Hugh Andrew Strahle Scott 

By one look at Hugh you can tell he's our school 
violinist — a "long, tall, s:iff son-of-a-gun. 

"Music, as Hugh's recreation, 
We hope will ma\e him well l(nown in our nalion." 

Grace Elizabeth Grantham 

Another of those nice girls that keep the Class of 
'20 from being run out of the school is Grace. 
Now, speaking of s'udying — we have reason to 
believe that Grace does it. 

"She knows how to do things — and she does them." 



Senior Class 

Marye Louise Wrenn 

Birdlike in her ways, our "Wrenn" keeps busily 
about her tasks, attending so promptly to her duties 
that she has plenty of time for the "larks" that her 
"suitors" so constantly provide. 

"Quiet, gentle and refined, 
Thoughtful always, too, and I(ind." 

President Literary Society, '19, '20. 

Allen Noel Hobbs 


An all-round good student is Noel. He is con- 
structed on generous lines with an ample founda- 
tion. The smart fellow is not always popular — not 
so with Noel; he's a fa orite with all his class- 

Critic Literary Society, 'IS. 

'19; Picture Editor 

Eleanor Denmark Cobb 

She was voted the most original 
and we will have to give "El' 

girl in the class, 
credit for being 

that. She can sure ruin your straight face if you 

stay around her any tixe. 





Emily Lavinia Branton 


We have hopes for "Em" as an author some of 
these days. She has shown quite a bit of genius 
in her works up at the "High." Her ability for 
developing plots, fiction and otherwise, is remark- 

Abram Weil 

Last, but not least, to enter our Class of '20 is 
Abram, who holds the class record for coming so 
near failing, and yet failing to fail, always and on 
all subjects, and thus avoiding "seventh" study hall. 
His motto is "Trust no one, but 'Trust thyself . 

Cecelia Marjorie Haynes 

Plump, pretty and popular is she. Some "wag 
says that she has her ears "banked" for winter. 

"Jolly and attractive. 
With beaux aplenty, 
She's a bright light 
In the Class of "20." 


Senior Class 

Sarah Mildred Sammons 


"Mirrid" is our most modest girl — quite an honor 
in a class of such "modest girls." But we guess 
"Mirrid" deserves it, even then. 

"Modesty becomes a lady — if she \noTvs how 
to wear it." 

Lillie Maie Mitchell 

Lillie is our quietest pupil. She has been one of 
the most studious ones, too. She is a very good 
student, tends to her own business, and bothers no 

"A quiet girl of unassuming mien. 
Whose diligence prevents her from being seen."

History— Famous Flight of the Class of '20 

UR romatinc days of high school are past and gone; each heart beats high with 
the thoughts of past events. The pa^es of remembrance have preserved for us 
pleasant thoughts and sweet memories. It is true these past four years have 
been full of trials and doubts, but in spite of trials, storms and obstacles, we stand 
before you victorious and consider the price worth while. 

In the autumn of 1916 our jolly band astonished the aviation camp of the G. H. S. 
with its enormous membership of eighty-six. We gathered together on the plane and 
began to discuss the four perilous flights ahead of us. As v/e gazed into the vast heavens 
above we trembled for none were sure of either pilot, mate or route. While standing 
thus the aeroplane on which we were to sail alighted before us. Cn its side painted 
in big black letters was the word "R. Freshman." Each aviator with a heartful of 
fear and anxiety stepped aboard the plane. Before sailing we turned and with a sigh 
gave a last longing look to the joys of the world. 

Suddenly we felt the plane quiver and a we realized we were ascending into the 
blue heavens above. We fully realized the many storms, obstacles and rough winds 
which awaited the termination of our journey. Still we looked ahead with courageous 
hearts and with minds to learn. It was thus we began our search into the endless regions 
of knowledge. As we kept ascending we could distinguish more plainly the fields of 
Algebra and Latin which were now just a short distance ahead of us. After exploring 
the fields of learning the plane changed its course and we returned to earth for a three- 
month furlough. 

The next fall found our same anxious faces on the aviation camp awaiting another 
fight into the realms of knowledge. The plane on which we were to sail this time was 
called the "Sophomore Sad," to say that after the aviators were safely seated for another 
flight we became aware that twelve of our classmates were missing. Regardless of this 
drawback the others took new hope, and this time we rose higher into the regions of 
knowledge than before. While sailing around we were thrown into the fellowship of 
the "Juniors" and "Seniors" of the camp. What jolly times we had together. There 
was the Sophomore-Senior entertaiment and many other festivities, which we recall with 
pleasant thoughts for the joyous occasions. 

After returning to the pleasures of the world again it seemed only a short time before 
our promising aviators were to take another flight into the skies. Each faithful aviator 
realized that this flght was to be more hazardous and dangerous than the others which 
we had just safely taken. Instead of these fears we harbored the hopes of victory and 
boarded another plane called the "Junior." Think how proud our brave hearts were 
over the fact of being called "Junior aviators." With two years of hard flying behind 
us we were beginning to feel more confident. The goal was now in sight and we stored 
away every atom of knowledge which could be of service to us in our final struggle. 
Our losses this year were heavy and our plane was quarantined with the "flu" for seven 


weeks. In spite of losing this time our studious aviators doubted their work and cleared 
the way to enter the next and last plane called "Senior." 

When we began our last and victorious flight as "Seniors" each heart was thrilleu 
and each eye shone forth in the splendor of knowledge. Many changes had taken place 
during the last two flights. Twenty of our aviators had dropped from the ranks. Two 
new members had boarded the "Juniors," one of which stayed only for a short visit. 
At the beginning of the "Senior" flight it was with regret that we learned that three of 
our best classmates, Jack Harrel, Lois Southerland and Henry Epstein, had sought 
their fields of knowledge elsewhere. While we miss them from our ranks we wish them 
much success in their future learning. Now there were left only forty-five faithful 
aviators to rise and finish exploring the realms of knowledge and at last win our reward, 
joy and achievement. 

Now our flight is over. We have reached firm ground with the honor of having 
in our company some of the most promising orators, essayists, poets, readers and debators 
the Goldsboro High School has ever produced. 

Surely, out of such a class of talented avaitors some will rise sooner or later and 
take their places among the stars. Forty-five of our number have sailed proudly over 
the clouds. As we scatter to the various stages in the field of life, we join in the words 
of Lord Byron, saying: 

"Farewell! a world that must be, and hath been — 
A sound which makes us linger; yet — farewell!" 

Virginia Sasser, Historian. 


We must leave you, dear old school, 

We, the famous Class of Twenty, 
We who seemed to spurn your rule 

In our faults and follies plenty. 
Yet, in truth, our hearts are loyal, 

Loyal to the class and you; 
For we love you, Alma Mater, 

And "inside we all are true. 


ass roem 

Schoolmates, now we bid ad:eu, 

Just before our feet are speeding 
In'.o pat'.ways strange and new; 

Full of faith that you'll be heeding 
Th;s last bit of earnest counsel, 

That you to the school be true; 
Conscious we'd been l;ss successful, 

If it hadn't been for you. 

Teachers all, we leave you, loo, 

And we can't help but remember 

How our pranks you all did rue, 

As you from a small, faint ember 

Daily fanned the flames anew. 

Though our aims you may have doubted, 

Thoug'i you found our \irtues few, 
You were, haply, in the darkness, 

Building better than you knew, 

Taking new a forward view, 

We, the Class of Nineleen-Twenty, 
Dedicate, dear school, to you, 

All our hopes and aims in plenty. 
Thus our last word, as our first word, 

G. H. S., we leave to you; 
For we love you, Alma Mater, 

And at heart we all are true. 


The Last Will and Testament 

E, the members of the Senior Class of 1 920, having survived the seven long 
years of Grammar School, having lived down the green freshness of the 
Freshmen, withstood the smashing of our Sophomore wisdom by the faculty, 
having lived through the jolly recklessness of Juniors, and having at last attained the 
dignity of Seniors (some of you may smile; this, I trust, is due to ignorance; I repeat, 
we have attained the dignity of Seniors), having climbed this steep and rugged path to 
the best of our ability, and yet being in a perfectly sane state of mind, and feeling that 
we are about to depart into worlds unknown, we do hereby make our last will and testa- 
ment, bequeathing our personal charms and belongings to the convng Senior classes, 
hoping that they will at least strive to follow the good example we have set for them, 
and may they win as much glory and success as has fallen to our lot during our bril- 
liant career. 

We do hereby declare all other wills null and void. 

To the incoming Senior classes do we bequeath our beloved Miss Nellie Cobb, with 
the hope that they will do no more to ruffle the serenity of her state of mind than we 
have done.

linear) . May they ride successfully through Virgil as we have done. We also leave 
them the famous clock which hangs on the wall of Miss Nellie's class room. 

To the Sophomores we bequeath the three front rows of seats in the balcony of the 
Acme Theater, but follow our good example and attend afternoon performances only. 

We do hereby will the Freshman Class all our Senior dignity and our deportment 
marks, with the hope that they will not deteriorate these records. To this said class we 
bequeath the good advice that has been given us, for we certainly shall have no need 
of it now, having wisdom enough of our own. 

To the incoming Freshmen we leave a part of our Senior wisdom, our good-will, 
our class colors, and our motto. 


The girls of the Senior Class will Helena Butler all their powder puffs, with the

The Prophecy of the Class of '20 

NE cold winter evening I came home to find everybody gone and no fires any- 
where. I immediately busied around to find something to build a fire with, and 
finding it, I brought it into the living room. (A morris chair was drawn up 
in front of the fireplace, so I put a sofa pillow in it to make myself comfortable.) I 
was anxious to make a large fire because I was very cold, so I put on a lot of paper 
at first and covered it with splinters. When I stuck a match to this it flared up into flames ; 
as it did, figures seemed to appear. As the blazes grew brighter these figures became 
distinguishable as well as familiar. There was a crowd on a corner of a large city and 
the center of attraction was the Salvation Army. Imagine my astonishment when I 
recognized Ruth Wilkins as the leader of this band. She was still persevering in her 
same old mission, which she has never yet gained, to convert Leland Edmundson. Just 
at that time I was suddenly roused by realizing that the fire was dying down so I put 
on some wood. 

As the new blazes flew up I sank back on my pillow to "dream" some more. 
"Misses Hilda Butler and Elizabeth Hummell, Wholesale and Retail Vamps," was on 
the sign that appeared before my eyes. Hilda had become a real "sho' nuff" vamp 
and "Liz" was her assistant. I suppose it seems impossible to you that I could have 
all these thoughts in one evening, but isn't it funny how folks can see things! 

See things! Well I should say so! Who would have thought it? Lucille Dem- 
psey, an old maid! Poor thing! She never could decide "who" was the base of the 
eternal triangle. (If you don't understand about the eternal trinagle — oh, well.) 

There loomed from a large flame in the corner of the fireplace the words, "Follies 
of 1925." Under that was written "Lillie Mitchell, Broadway's Jazz Baby." There 
were several people coming from the stage entrance. I was greatly shocked in recogniz- 
ing Inez Newsome, Sudie Murphre, Grace Grantham, Nellie Hinson, Jewel Hinson, 
Gladys Harrell, and Annie Grady as the chorus girls. Bishop Malpass was there, too — 
he was stage manager. 

As this picture faded away it gave place to quite a confused scene, but finally 
Eleanor Kornegay stood before me. She was one of our State Legislators and she 
semed to be carrying her point as usual. How well "Ell" lived up to her motto, "I'll 
be sitting with my knitting in the good old-fashioned way!" 

No, I haven't forgotten the boys of '20. Francis Stanley blazed forth next. He 
was standing on the corner of Walnut and John Streets, with his hat in his hand, saying 
his "verses" which were written of old. Francis repeated these verses to pass the time 
away when he was not rushed by his deadly business. By his side was Hugh Scott 
playing his "fiddle." I was glad to see that our most promising boy had made such a 
grand success. 

The fire was getting very low, for I had been so interested in what I was seeing 
that I had forgotten to put on the coal. I threw several large pieces on and settled down 


again. 'Twas a log cabin on the edge of the woods that I saw next. I was greatly 
surprised to see Dorothy Simmons come out with somebody — not Hart. They were very 
progressive farmers, for I could see them headed for the cottonfield. Dorothy knew 
more about cotton than her husband, because she had in her Senior year written a very 
instructive essay on "Cotton Cultivation." 

Naturally I began to wonder what had become of poor Hart, when in large letters 
I saw "Wayne County Jail." Behind the bars of a cell Hart was singing, "Oh, 
Helen." Hart didn't care, since Dorothy kicked him. 

The shock of the jail aroused me, but I soon dozed (if I may call it that) off again. 
I saw a large Chautauqua tent full of people and a man had come on the stage to lecture 
on "The Fire Safety League." Gordon Maxwell was the lecturer. After a while 
he disappeared and four people came on the stage. This was the great "Musical Four" 
which had won fame far and wide. Louise Wrenn, pianist; Emily Branton and Mar- 
jorie Haynes, songsters, and Elizabeth Simkins, violinst. Five more members of the 
class had won success. 

The figures which appeared next were confused also, but I finally succeeded in real- 
izing that "it" was a suffragette meeting. Blanche Henley was making a great lecture. 
There were several people on the platform with her, Annie Hornaday for one. I thought 
that "the most sentimental girl" would be the stay-at-home-old-fashioned-wife kind, but 
nevertheless she was right there. Stella Crone and Eleanor Cobb were there, too, cheer- 
ing everything that was said and yelling, "Down with the men!" 

A piece of coal fell and as it did a large flame came up. This revealed a tent, which 
proved to be a side show in a big circus. On it was painted, "The Tallest Man in the 
World — Have you seen him?" Then, on the inside, I saw — Seymour Johnson. I've 
never seen a human as tall as he seemed to be. Seymour may not fulfill this prophecy, 
but everything is possible these days. 

A dark, mysterious girl with Egypt in her eyes looked at me from a big flame. She 
was "some vamp," too. They say that blondes can't be vamps, but there was a blonde 
with the other girl. As the fire grew brighter — yes! they really were Mildred Sammons 
and Helen Yelverton. 

The fire was burning fine and it was easy to "see things." The next scene was in 
the Senate at Washington. I seemed to hear voices and finally realized that Honorable 
Nannie Summerlin was the leader of the opposition to the Peace Treaty. She wasn't 
giggling, but with a very grave look was making a wonderful speech. 

The lines of the Senate chamber changed and faded to those of a college class room. 
On the board I distinguished French phrases and, turning to the desk, I recognized Abram, 
the leading French scholar in our class; Miss Fullerton will in the future boast of being 
his teacher. 

It was rather a mixup that appeared next, but finally a rolling pin landed on Cecil 
Smith's head. Still he smiled. Poor, henpecked Cecil! Who can his wife be? But 
about that time the scene faded away. 

In a big blaze I saw a barber's pole. By it was the sign, "Hobbs's Barber Shop — 
Walk In." Noel was a barber, and a very successful one, too. He looked so real 


that before I knew it I began questioning him. "What about Harmon? Has he ever 
married?" "Not quite," was the reply. "The church was decorated, the bride and 
everybody had arrived, except the groom. It was raining, so Harmon couldn't get 
there; consequently, the bride married the best man." 

Now from the blaze a discouraged face gazed at me. It was that of Leslie Lang- 
ston. He was a book agent, and had just been told again that the lady of the house 
was out. 

Again the scene shifted. There was someone seated at a desk writing. She looked 
as though she was in deep thought, and I know she was, because it was Virginia Sasser, 
the great historian. A queer sensation ran over me as I realized that all these famous 
people were in my class. 

"Miss Brogden's School for Girls" was on the building that appeared next. Ila 
was the head of this flourishing institution, where many girls attended yearly. 

A person seemed to wander "lonely as a cloud," but as she turned around, revealing 
the poet in her intellectual brow, I recognized Nellie Crow. Nellie's recitations for 
morning exercises inspired her greatly, and she was on the road to success. 

As the fire gradually grew dim, I saw something that looked like a scroll, held by 
two forms. As I leaned nearer, the scroll unrolled and I could read the words: "The 
Famous Order of Clinging Vines." The two figures proved to be Mildred Smith and 
Julia Maie Roberts. 

The fire was nearly gone now, and I sat there a few minutes thinking of all my 
dear classmates. Again, casually glancing into the fireplace, I saw — what did I see? 
Yes! No! It couldn't be. I locked closer. My eyes bulged. It was the same tow- 
headed, pale, washed-out (only more so) creature! Where? Doing what? In the 
most nondescript kind of surroundings, I, myself, Sarah Giddens, was plunged elbow- 
deep in a washtub, with the same old-time dreamy manner, washing clothes. Ye gods! 
What ends we mortals come to! I jumped up shivering. No wonder the fire had gone out. 

Sarah Giddens, Prophet.

Chapel Exercises Enjoyed 
by All the Students 

The student body was indeed agreeably sur- 
prised this morning in chapel when Mr. Ham- 
rick announced that the Freshman Class would 
sing, "Locked in the Stable With the Sheep." 

Miss Butler officiated at the piano, doing her- 
self and the class that she represents credit. 

Miss Simmons, of the Senior Class, also ren- 
dered a beautiful instrumental solo. This was 
quite a surprise to her many friends, but she ex- 
plains that her first attempt on the piano was 
made last year in the flood when her sister 
floated down the river on the table and she ac- 
companied her on the piano. 

Seventh Period Notes 

The same delegates representing the Sopho- 
more and Freshmen were present when the meet- 
ing was called to order yesterday. Mr. Weil 
was back at his desk, having been influenced by 
Miss Summerell to atteno our meetings every 
afternoon. Miss Allen, of the Junior Class, who 
with her friend, Miss Adams, has been present 
every day, was absent. 

Class Suffers Great 

The Senior Class has suffered a great calamity 
in that Miss Peele, ever alert to protect the class, 
because (so she says) idle heads will plot mis- 
chief, forgot to assign an English lesson for to- 
morrow. The class might well have stood this 
shock had Miss Fullerton not also told us that we 
need take only seventy-five lines of Virgil to- 



We are always glad to note any improvement 
in our young friends. This time it is Francis 
Stanley, who is slightly connected with this pa- 
per, he having had to stay in only three hours, 
forty-three minutes, and fifty-one seconds last 

Lunch Room Notes 

The profit on the lunch room took a decided 
step forward today. Some think it was because 
"Boose" was absent; others think it was just 
a coincidence. 

The lunch room, ever alert to look out for its 
customers, waited on a large party yesterday in 
the person of Miss Sarah Giddens.

of us, have never been read with the idea of find-

Junior History 

N September, 1917, eighty souls filed through the halls of the G. H. S., mocked 
and scorned because they were Freshmen. The other classes ceased this 
mockery when we were the first class to buy and present to the school a gov- 
ernment Liberty bond. 

On St. Patrick's Day we entertained the Senior Class. We ourselves were honored 
by giving Miss Sudie Creech as a representative for the school in the finals of the Tri- 
angular Debate at Chapel Hill. 

Although Durham conquered us, we have great prospects as Juniors in taking the 
Aycock Memorial from them. 

Before we close the third chapter of our history, we feel it our duty to say that we 
have finally dwindled down to thirty-three souls, several of our girls having entered into 

The Junior-Senior banquet is the closing event of the third chapter of the Class of '21.

Sophomore History 

NE beautiful day in September, 1918, a great many childr3n entered the High 
School. These were, you understand, the Fre;hm:n. Some of them were 
frightened, some awed, while others thought themselves the only thing in exist- 
ence — quite as important as Mr. Hamnck, in fact. I am satisfied that it didn't take 
long for them to find out how insignificant they were. 

The other classes all seemed to think that it was a disgrace to be a Freshman — as 
though they had never been one. The Freshies were welcomed with all sorts of initia- 
tions, but these are too numerous to mention. 

The main things we remember about the first of the year is Mr. Wright's questions 
at the beginning and ending of each period for the first week, "What section is this?" 
and our nervousness at the ringing of the gong. 

Later in the year the Freshmen took part in many contests. Miss Ehzabeth Edwards 
tried in the musical contest, but, sad to say, she did not win. Miss Hilda Weil, Miss 
Laura Daughtry, Mss Louise Robinson, Miss Evelyn Wilkms, and Mr. Hazel Zealy 
all tried in the Triangular Debate, but as this was new work to them they all lost out. 
We believe, though, that "if you don't first succeed, try, try again," and that's exactly 
what we are doing. Don't think that the Freshmen lost out in everything, because they 
didn't. One of this large class won the prize in the Red Cross speech contest. 

The Freshman Class had a class picnic in May at Stephen's Mill. One of the main 
features of entertainment was jesting. Then the examinations came, and that was where 
a few of us "were left." However, the rest of us still "Go Forward." 

Again we started to school, but this time, of course, as Sophomores, and now we 
have the privilege of looking down on the Freshmen, but we are too kind to do this; 
besides, there are some very attractive Freshmen, both boys and girls. 

This year we have several boys on the basketball team and other teams. 

But this is ancient history, and we strive ever "Onward and Upward."

Football in 1919 

T the beginning of the football season this year our team had a very serious 
obstacle in the loss of seven of its best players from last year's team. Not- 
withstanding this handicap, it made a very creditable record by winning every 
game it played, with the exception of two, one of which resulted in a tie. The different 
positions on our team this year were represented by the best material that our efficient 
coach, J. F. Love, formerly of the University of North Carolina, could obtain. The 
team was composed of Daniels and Nash at ends, Dortch and Warrick at tackles, 
Gardner and Hood at guards, and Maxwell at center. In the backfield, King and 
Smith were at halfback and Prince at full, while Rackley held down the position of 

The complete record that our team made is as follows:

Literary Societies 

jURING the session of 1918-1919 the students were organized into two 
literary societies — the O. Henry into two sections for the boys, and the John 
Charles McNeil into three sections for the girls. On account of the influenza 
epidemic and other interruptions only eight regular meetings and three joint meetings 
were held. Two of the joint meetings were celebrated Thanksgiving and Washington's 
birthday respectively. The third program was a debate between the A and B sections of 
the Sophomore Class. 

These sections were reorganized on Friday, September 1 9th, for the school year 
1919-1920. This year the societies held tweleve regular meetings and three joint meet- 
ings. The first joint program was a debate on the query: "Resolved, That capital 
punishment should be abolished. The affirmative was upheld by Esther Crowson, '22, 
and Mary Morris, 21. The negative was supported by William Heeden, '22, and 
Blanche Henley, '20. The decision was rendered in favor of the affirmative. The 
second meeting was given over to art with a view to educating the student body in 
appreciation of the pictures by means of the Elson Art Exhibit. At the third meeting

Those Pesky Trousers 

ELL, what do you suggest? We've got to get these clothes pressed. I will 
not miss that dance," said Jerry desperately. 

"If you hadn't been so particular about those roses we shouldn't have 
gone to the florist's and got caught in that shower," said Jimmy in a disgusted tone. 

"Something's got to be done, and the pressing club is closed," Jerry said in a de- 
jected voice. 

He glanced out the window. The people who lived on the corner, and whose back 
door almost collided with the side of the apartment house where Jimmy and Jerry lodged, 
were starting out for a drive. As the chauffeur slammed the door of the car Jerry 
slapped his knee. "The very idea" he exclaimed excitedly. "The cook in that kitchen 
next door just left and she has been ironing. I saw her through the window. I'm going 
over and press my suit." 

Jimmy, who was not so daring, would not "follow suit." Jerry hurriedly changed 
his clothes, and with the damaged suit under his arm made his way to the back of the 
house next door. 


The door was locked, but there were two boxes next to the house, and Jerry, de- 
termined to carry out his purpose, placed one on top of the other and climbed up to an 
open window. As the window was not high he could easily push the screen. Crash! 
The next thing he knew he was pinned between the window and sill. (He remem- 
bered the crack he had seen in the glass a moment before.) As he tried to raise the 
window, another crash! The glass showered all around him. Why had he kicked? 
This was surely tough luck! The noise did not bring anyone to the scene of action, so 
Jerry again pushed up the window and crawled in. There was the electric iron just 
as the cook had left it. He turned on the current and began pressing. 

He was still pressing the pants when he heard in the hall outside a hushed voice, 
saying, "He was right in there when I saw him." 

The door opened and in walked a policeman, followed by two others and a scared 
looking house maid. 

"Who are you?" 

"J. W. Laughlin, of 270 East Clark Street," said Jerry, feeling exceedingly un- 

"What are you doing here?" 

"Just pressing these pants." 

"Come along — " 


"Come along I say — " 

"But old top, use discretion; search me, I haven't got anything. I'm in tough luck. 
I can't go to any police office. I've got a girl waiting to go to a dance. I've got an 
engagement." He explained breathlessly. 

The front door opened as the family came in. On hearing the commotion in the 
kitchen they hurried out to find the policeman trying to arrest Jerry. Mrs. Hildreth 
recognized him as her neighbor. They all had a good laugh at Jerry's explanation. 

As it was rather late when Jerry finished pressing his trousers, Mrs. Hildreth offered 
her car that he might lose as little time as possible in getting to the dance. 

Sudie Creech, '21. 


Safety League 

HE Safety League that we all enjoy so much was first organized by Mrs. Sue 
Hollowell in 1917. Since then it has been a great help to all the pupils in 
the school. Each one takes great interest in working in any way for the league. 
We have a meeting once each month. The program sometimes is short, but it is always 
interesting. These programs are very helpful to all in preventing fire. 

The fire drill is one of the best features of the Safety League. The bell rings three 
times, which means fire, and all rush out of the building in an orderly way, leaving 
everything just as it was when the bell rang. It is fun when there is no fire, for some- 
times we are on a hard problem and we leave it to finish it the next day. 

"Our space is small, and our writing not long, 
But remember this, the league is strong."

The Triangular Debate 

URING the school year 1917-1918 the first real interest was taken by our 
High School in the State Triangular Debate. Our school was placed in the 
triangle with Wilmington and Lumberton but Wilmington having dropped out 
too late to form a new triangle, both cur teams debated against Lumberton and were 
successful. The winners this year were Eula Rackley, Ada Wolman, Blanche Henley 
and Paul Sadler. They went to Chapel Hill and our affirmative won out in the first 
preliminaries. Our success stopped with that small victory that year, but our fighting 
blocd was up, and 1919 saw a large number of entries in the early spring. We were 
placed with Greenville and Rocky Mount this time and were victorious. Our debaters 
this year were Sudie Creech and William Hosea upholding the affirmative, and Tom 
Johnson and Blanche Henly and Henry Epstein the negative. The affirmative team was 
winner in the first and second preliminaries and debated in the fials agaist the Durham 
H'gh School. We lost the "Cup," though we were proud of our team. 

This year we had seventeen to enter. They were Helen Yelverton, Evelyn Wilkins, 
Elizabeth Edwards, Blanche Henley, Annie Hornaday, Esther Crowson, Stella Crone, 
Blanie Rackley, Louise Robinson, Hilda Weil, Esther Leah Epstein, Charles Barham, 
Edwin Ipock, Charles Norwood, Ogden Parker, and Andnna Mclntyre and Nellie 
Crow. The first preliminary was held Friday, March 1 2, and the following were 
chosen: Eleanor Daniels, Evelyn Wilkins, Elizabeth Edwards, Blanche Henley, Annie 
Hornaday, Esther Crowscn, Edwin Ipock, Charles Norwood and Stella Crone. On 
Monday, March -5, the second preliminary was held and the four speakers with two 
alternates were chosen to represent the school. The affirmative team is Eleanor Daniels 
and Evelyn Wilkins with Esther Crowson as alternate, the negative is Blanche Henley 
and Elizabeth Edwards with Annie Hornaday as alternate. This yenr our affirmative 
will debate against Fayetteville's negative here, and our negative will go to Wilmington 
and debate against their affirmative. We have faith in our team and our highest ambition 
is to have the Aycock Memorial cup brought to our school by the "Chosen Four."

Social Items 


VERY delightful party was given by the High School to the Rocky Mount 
fcotball boys who played against our team here. 

The main feature of the evening was dancing, which is always enjoyed. 
During the evening several vocal selections were given by one of the Rocky Mount boys. 
The chaperones for the evening were Misses Summerell and Walker and Mr. 


Miss Dora Mae Fulgum, a member of the Sophomore Class, was to be married 
immediately after Christmas. In view of this occasion the Sophomore Class decided to 
give a party in her honor the Friday night before Christmas. 

The High School Auditorium was beautifully decorated with Christmas greens, holly 
and pin. 

The faculty and several of Miss Fulgum's friends were guests of the class. 

Dancing and games afforded amusement for the first part of the evening. 

Delightful refreshments of punch, ice cream and cake were served at the close of 
the evening. 


Everybody gave a sigh of relief! Mid-term exams were over. The Freshmen, 
thinking some special celebration should be given, decided to give their first party of 
the year on Friday, January 28, in honor of the occasion. 

Friday night found the auditorium beautifully decorated and full of smiling Freshmen. 

As this was the : r first party there were no guests except the faculty. Though some 
cf us who are not Freshmen felt slighted at not being allowed to enjoy the fun, when we 
remember our first parties we forgive them. 

Games and dancing filled the first part of the evening. After the delicious ice cream 
course the party was turned into a skating rink. Skating is always enjoyed, but never so 
much as at a High School party. Indeed, Mr. Hamrick had to turn off all Ights to 
remnd us it was time to say good-night! 


The greatest social event of the High School year is the Junior-Sanior aBnquet given 
by the Juniors to the Seniors. From the time a pupil enters High School he looks forward 
to this event. In our Freshmen year we ar? allowed only to stand by and watch; in our 
Sophomore year we are allowed to serve at the long looked forward to banquet; and this, 
our Junior year, we are planning to entertain the Class of 1920. 


There is a large graduating class this year, probably the largest that our High School 
has ever had, and an unusually small Junior Class. But with Blame Rackley as Presi- 
dent, and with Lamont Edgerton as toastmaster and with the co-operation of the class 
as a whole, end with the timely a:d of Miss Edwards, Miss Summerell and other mem- 
lers cf the faculuty, the Juniors are confidently planning to made the Junior-Senior 
B nque' of 1920 an event long to be cherished by every out-going Senior. 

The fo'lowing program has been prepared: 


Toast to "G. H. S." Toastmaster 

"Dear G. H. S. we will be true 
And ever love the white and blue." 

Response Mr. Hamilton 

Our Principal Susan Creech 

"O he sits high in all the pupil's hearls." 

Response Mr. Hamrick 

The Faculty Gordon Maxwell 

They labor "with a strength borrowed from all past ages." 

Response Miss Summerell 

The Seniors Mary Morris 

"The gentleness of all the gods go wit hthee." 

Response Blanche Henley 

The Juniors Hart Norwood 

"Let Seniors and Alumni glory in their past 
But Juniors glory in their days to be." 

Response Blanie Rackley 


"Those who have gone before have not found that the Gates of Gold lead to oblivion." 

The Future — 

"But youth's a stuff will not endure. 
What's to come is still unsure."

The Junior Play 

N April 30, the Junior class of the Goldsboro High School 
gave a play for the purpose of raising money for the custom- 
ary banquet, given the Seniors by the Juniors. This produc- 
tion came under the clever management of Miss Frances Summerell. 
The charming comedy, full of love, romance and laughter, was pre- 
sented at the Goldsboro High School . The plot is as follows: 

Everyone at Hawkhurst is agitated because the oldest son of the 
house and heir to the estate has become infatuated with Mrs. Omara 
and her daughter Peggy, through their assistance in the pursuit of his 
especial hobby of spiders. Mrs. Omara is the widow of an Irish 
scientist and is not averse to a second matrimonial venture, but wishes 
first to see her beautiful daughter embarked en the sea of matrimony. 
While the mother considers Lord Crackenthorpe a good mate for her 
daughter, Peggy, not caring for him, returns the compliment and tries 
to marry him to her mother. When things have reached this state Jimmy 
Keppel, Lord Crackenthorpe's younger brother, returns from his tea 
plantation . Lady Crackenthorpe and Uncle Archie hit upon a plan 
by which to get rid of the "O'maras" ! Jimmy allows himself to be 
made a fool of for his mother's sake, but in the end, he himself is 
caught in Peggy's web.
